Backwards Pants

Good Morning 
Good Morning
Good Morning to you.
this is a song my kids in Mexico sang to the English teacher when she came into the room.  Sing may be an exaggeration, they had these words and put some notes to it.
The teacher would say:  Good morning children.
The kids would yell:  Good morning teacher.

Is it weird I never learned the English teacher's name?  She was always Miss Ingles (Miss English).  

None of this is the point of this post...
We're going to go for bullets today:

*Have you ever worn your pants backwards?  Lucky me, I get to check that off my bucket list.  (Clearly, I'm kidding.  I don't actually have a bucket list & wearing pants backwards would never make that list.)
Usually you can tell when you put exercise pants on backwards (I mean, you can tell when you put all pants on backwards), except for this morning apparently.  You want to know the really sad part, I didn't figure it out until the END of an hour long class.  I guess it's better that way so I wasn't self-conscious.  My partner today was a sweet married man so hopefully he didn't notice.  
I hope no one noticed.
Immediately after class I went and switched them around.  At that point, what's the point?  I asked myself.  I had errands to run.

*Walgreens photo pick-up happened.

*Then I forgot I was going to treat myself to coffee from my favorite coffee place this morning so I forgot my cup.  I went home, got my cup, then walked back to the coffee place and who do I see when I walk in?  My fitness instructor.  He's says, "Hey!  Great job in class today."  (I've missed his class for at least 4 weeks because of work so I was surprised he even remembered me.)  So we're chatting and then the inevitable question of this time of year:  "How are you so tan already?"  I just say, "I tan pretty easily and I've been running."  I also think the bright yellow tank I was wearing made me look tanner than I actually am.

*During all my walking (and we ran outside for a bit during class as well) it smells so good!  Spring is here!  The tulips.  The trees with white flowers!  May I encourage you to take deep breaths in through your nose?  It can sometimes be a risky thing to do in the city, but right now... give it a try!
I hope they stop cutting down the dandelions by the lake.  I know, Mom, they are weeds, but I look at them as the most naturally occurring flowers.  And I love blowing them once they're not yellow anymore.  (Yes, I know, spreading the seeds.)  Clearly I'm not the only one because they are everywhere!

*I even got to chat with my favorite little old man block neighbor.  I see him every so often and every time I do, he makes me smile.

Today's going to be a great day.  Because I said so...
*If everything falls into place I get to have lunch with Jason since we have a meeting downtown around lunch time (so I get to ride my bike!).  Yes, work conversations will happen, but I'm in such a chatty mood right now, I'm really looking forward to chat time.  Yesterday, I called one of my chattiest co-workers in NYC to catch-up because I was in the mood.

*Dinner with Emily at Chicago Diner.  No, I did not force her to go.  She picked it all on her own.

See... great day... because I said so.
I hope you have one too!

Veggie Tinga

I made Vegetarian Tinga for a mexican pot luck I went to on Tuesday.

Many people have never heard of Tinga, let alone knowing you can make it vegetarian style.  You absolutely can!  And it's so easy.

Traditional tinga is made of shredded chicken with chipotle flavoring.  I used cabbage instead of the chicken.

I looked at a lot of different recipes online, but couldn't find a recipe for the veggie tinga I had in mind, so I ended up combining the guidelines of those recipes and making my own.

Here's what I did:

1 onion
1 head of cabbage
1 7oz. can chipotle (the peppers in adobo sauce)
5 ish roma tomatoes
olive oil

-Saute onion in olive oil.
-Chop cabbage (I used youtube to help me figure out the best way to do that) add to onion and saute.
-Blend the chipotle and tomatoes in blender.
Note:  Some people only like to add the sauce from the chipotle peppers.  I added the entire can (including the peppers themselves).  It's up to you depending on how spicy you want it.  (I like my food s…

Week Notes

The teenagers from Parkland are giving me so much hope.  So much hope.  I think this is the first time I've read a political news article and smiled since Nov. 8, 2016.

Is the Tide commercial making anyone else cry during the Olympics?

As someone who's not generally a TV fan, how is it possible for me to get so involved, so quickly, in every sport?  Which by the way I know nothing about.

Anyone ever try Door Dash.  I'm not big on delivery services in general, but after a bad experience with Grub Hub we gave Door Dash a try and we are fans.

When a friend recommends a happy hour place, you go.  So Thursday morning a friend told me about Mangia Italiano.  Thursday happy hour Mike & I were there.


*Karen tells me that is not what I'm supposed to say, but it makes sense in my head...

Saturday I was in San Antonio for work, I did get to hang out with a friend while I was in town so that definitely made the trip better, combined with the fact that the volunteers there are just wonderful.

I knew Sunday was going to be overwhelming before I left on Friday.  I always write lists when I'm overwhelmed, I wrote a list.  (Even though I hardly referenced it on Sunday.)  Just writing it down helps me feel better.

Sunday we registered for at two places, starting at 9am.  When we finished the second one (which we were both dragging ourselves through) it felt like it was time for was 2pm.  Guys, this experience brought so much clarity to people's registerys.  I would not necessarily say it was a fun experience.  And I am very happy Mike seems to have a vision because we would limit the insane number of options down to a couple options together and then I would say I don'…
